National Cathedral speeds up decision on Lee and Jackson windows

“Those windows won’t remain in their current place in their current context”

NBC4 Washington DC reports (video and text) that the National Cathedral has changed its timetable for making a decision on the fate of stain-glass windows honoring Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. A decision their fate had been two years away. The windows were a gift of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and were installed in the 1950s.

The Confederate battle flag in the windows was replaced with plain blue glass after the killings in Charleston, SC.

A decision is expected “soon.”

The Cathedral’s page on the windows is here. At the time of this writing, the last post on that page is about a panel discussion March 2017.
